During the late 1970s, Ford was upon a significant crossroads to develop the third-generation Mustang. After a very
criticized second-generation pony in the Mustang II, enthusiasts craved a stallion that would harness the
success from Mustang's original 1960s era. Luckily, in 1979, the Mustang community and enthusiasts received
wish to get a revolutionary model to turn muscle cars' tide. The Fox Body Mustang was unlike any previous pony
assembled with a shorter wheelbase, sloped rear deck, and a bold new front fascia. The first half of its
comprised a front fascia that came to be known as the four-eyed Fox Body, simply because of the four squared
headlights. While the last half of the generation brought the design to more uniform and rectangular headlights.
The unique design and short wheelbase allowed the Fox Body Mustang to have one of the lightest chassis's ever to be
invigorated into a Mustang. Luckily, Steeda got its start in 1988 with the Fox Body to start a legacy of performance
unlike any other in the Mustang community. From there on, we developed specifically designed lowering springs,
chassis bracing, cold air intakes, rotors, sway bars, and exterior modifications to culminate the ultimate driving
experience. Since then, we have strived to make the 1979-1993 Mustang the heritage that started it all for Steeda.
In Mustang history, one generation comes to mind to a broad diversity of uses; this is the 1979-1993 Mustang. The
Fox Body, unlike any other of the previous two generations, features a cutting-edge design that is lightweight,
elegant, and easy to modify. While the Fox Body was conquering the race tracks and backroads, Steeda was getting its
start in 1988, where we started our performance legacy with the 80s pony. From thereon, we pushed the envelope to
create performance parts such as lowering springs, sway bars, rotors, cold air intakes, long-tube headers, axle-back
exhaust, and more.
Each one of these modifications will aid your Fox Body pony into becoming a formidable racehorse out on the drag
strip, road course, autocross, and even carve up your favorite mountain road. For us, as a company, it helped us lay
the foundation for everything we have worked to help Mustang enthusiasts achieve their ultimate goals into making a
behemoth of a stallion to take anywhere at any time.
